MobileMark 2012 1.5 is an application-based benchmark that reflects usage patterns of business users in the areas of office productivity, media creation and media consumption. Unlike benchmarks that only measure battery life, MobileMark 2012 measures battery life and performance simultaneously, showing how well a system design addresses the inherent tradeoffs between performance and power management.
The OCZ Vertex 3.20 does a little better in our battery life test when compared to the Kingston V300. OCZ chose to us the standard controller and didn't use the new B02 that increases battery life while reducing power consumption.
PCMark Vantage HDD Test - Power Draw
Here we see where the longer battery life comes from. The Vertex 3.20 120GB has a lower idle power draw than the V300 120GB. When in use, the V3.20 pulls more power, though.
